New on-demand performance collection celebrating Women’s History Month

As part of our continuing efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in our organization and field, we are using our platform to celebrate the contributions that women composers, musicians and artists have made to The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and orchestral music as a whole during Women’s History Month and throughout the rest of the year.

Below, explore a new performance collection that shares the artistic voices of some of the women with whom we have had the pleasure of collaborating! All eight performances are available for free, on-demand viewing in the Concert Library.
